What kind of development method can make the interface more user-friendly, less difficult to develop, and which is more suitable for C/S or B/S?
We definitely recommend PI Vision over PI Processbook. PI Vision is our de facto visualization platform and has capabilities that PI Processbook doesn't have. You can develop custom symbols in PI Vision using DHTML and also use our inbuilt symbols.
I am not sure what you mean by C/S and B/S. What do the acronyms represent?
Thank you very much for your answer.
The C/S and B/S in my question are respectively the meaning of Client/Server and Browser/Server. They are also called fat Client and thin Client.
Thanks for the info.
Fat client = PI Processbook
Thin client = PI Vision
In addition, you can also deploy your existing Processbook displays in PI Vision. Few PI Vision features will be disabled for Processbooks like edit etc.

About PI CALC, this tool will be add in PI VISION, do you know?
If you are looking for dynamic calculations in PI Vision then would suggest you to create AF analysis with output attribute mapped ( i.e. Analysis data reference) and add to PI Vision. It will calculate dynamically based on the expression defined.
I'm looking for a way to host my processbook PDI files on PI Vision, would you suggest how it can be achieved?
HI Raja, PI Vision can import the PDI files and display them but not edit them. In Vision 2019 there is a separate utility to migrate PDI files into Vision as native displays that can be edited in Vision.

Until now, if you want to use SQC to monitor the deviation in your process you need to stick with ProcessBook. The SQC module is still not available in Vision (but can be built as custom symbol)
You can also use the limits sub attributes and SQC analysis and then use PI Vision instead of processbook. If you set it up eight, your limits change with the product code that you are running. You can't dynamically pick limits in processbook.
The only think you won't see is the histogram...
